Everyone else, however, will likely have to wade through archaic design choices, technical flaws and pacing concerns to derive...
Excerpt: If you grew up playing computer games, there’s a chance you might have played the venerable Might and Magic games. Not the Heroes of Might and Magic series of strategy games; the old-school brutal first-person dungeon crawlers in a fantasy world with a dash of science fiction.

Pros: Tough, but fair, Diverse class selection, Strong combat

Cons: Strongly adheres to classic RPG design. A number of bugs, and glitches. Restrictive and unrewarding combat and a dull story with no sense of pacing.
